Re: I can't say I'm jumping ship just yet
@Sane IT You're right -- fake names do bring out the worst in people. Take Google/Google+ -- YouTube was overrun with spam comments and flame wars because it didn't require users to post under their real name. When Google decided that all YouTube commenters would need to use a G+ profile (which required your real name) people weren't pleased. Spam comments, though, decreased -- as did comments overall. Ultimately (and recently) Google went back on that policy, and commenters can resume anonymously. From a traffic perspective, anonymous profiles will increase engagement. But from a quality perspective, they're detrimental.
